Beyond Light is fast approaching so if you’re looking to get the best equipment possible before the new expansion, here are the five most important weapons to add to your list.

Destiny 2’s next major update is just days away as November 10 draws near. Like countless players around the world, you’re likely trying to make some last-minute preparations for the new content.

Whether you’re leveling up a new Guardian or simply trying to fill out your list of Exotics before various content is locked away in the vault. There’s plenty to get done over the next few days but perhaps the most important thing to consider is your arsenal.

Beyond Light will be introducing all-new threats, so it’s crucial that you have the right tools for every situation. Below is an overview of five extremely important weapons you should track down before the next adventure kicks off.

Falling Guillotine

The Falling Guillotine is capable of some extreme damage if you land multiple hits in a row.

If you’ve been playing consistently throughout the current season, you’ll be very familiar with this weapon. The Falling Guillotine is a Legendary Sword that absolutely shreds in PvE content. 

It boasts some of the best damage to tanky foes while still offering enough versatility to wipe out waves of smaller enemies as well.

All you need to do is hit rank 30 in the current season pass to unlock the base version of this weapon. However, if you fill out the season pass all the way to rank 45, you’ll then be able to grind for custom rolls instead. Get to grinding if you’re only just hopping back into Destiny 2. This is one weapon you can easily get just by putting in the hours.

Gnawing Hunger

If you’re looking for a good Auto Rifle, you can’t pass up the Gnawing Hunger Legendary.

Next up is one of the most powerful PvP guns in the game today. After a good stretch of auto rifle dominance in the PvP meta, there’s a chance we see some hefty nerfs very soon. For the time being, however, Gnawing Hunger leads the pack when it comes to Legendary rifles.

This weapon can be acquired as a random drop at any point in time, though you can also hone in on it. Umbral Engrams are going to be key and there’s even a curated roll that can be found in Reckoning.

Zen Moment and Kill Clip are some great overall traits to find for a godly PvE build. While Arrowhead Brake and Steady Rounds can come in handy for PvP.

Outbreak Perfected

Outbreak weapons have a long history in the Destiny franchise and the Perfected Pulse Rifle is a must-have for Beyond Light.

Let’s switch gears and focus on some Exotics you might want in your inventory before Beyond Light drops. There’s no doubt you’ll be needing various loadouts for a variety of situations, though one thing Outbreak Perfected can give you is consistency.

It’s one of the strongest Pulse Rifles in the game but it’s not the simplest to unlock. You’ll first need to drop into Titan and find the Fallen Transponder. This will point you towards six different Lost Sectors that you’ll need to clear out.

Once these are all ticked off, head to the Farm and start your Zero Hour mission. It’s a rather challenging PvE activity if you’ve never done it before. So try to bring a full Fireteam with you as you hunt down the Outbreak Perfected.

With this weapon in hand, standard enemies can be taken out in the blink of an eye and those nearby will be hit with nanite swarms to boot. It’s great at clearing areas, picking off foes from a distance, and an all-around solid weapon to have for Beyond Light.

Whisper of the Worm

Destiny
Bungie
Whisper has been one of the most popular Exotic weapons since it was introduced in Destiny 2.

Up next is an Exotic that’s been around for quite some time. The Whisper of the Worm has long been one of the best snipers in Destiny and Year 4 should be no different. This unique gun comes with one of the more powerful effects in the game. Landing rapid precision shots refills the magazine so you can keep firing.

It’s extremely handy for long-range boss fights, allowing your team to sit at a safe distance and slowly chip away at a large health pool. You’ll need a team to help you claim the Whisper of the Worm, however. Io’s Lost Oasis landing zone is where you’ll need to head. Keep an eye out for a Taken Blight public event.

You have to complete one of the longest missions in Destiny 2, but with the right approach, it can be smashed out in your next session. It’s absolutely worth putting in the effort to get this taken care of before Beyond Light drops.

Anarchy

Anarchy is one of the most lethal heavy weapons in Destiny history.

Last but not least, another PvE monster to add to your arsenal is the Anarchy. This has been a popular heavy weapon since the Scourge of the Past raid launched in 2018. It can shred bosses as fast as anything in the game. Therefore, it’s sure to come in handy as you grind through Beyond Light’s early content.

It launches Arc Traps that can chain damage across any given surface. With six grenades in the magazine, these can be spammed rather quickly to deal a ton of damage. Given that it’s an Exotic, it’ll deal more than similar Legendary weapons as well.

It’s been a fan favorite for a while now. If you’re looking to blitz through PvE content as soon as possible in Beyond Light, this is one weapon you can’t miss out on.

Expect to change out your inventory a great deal as you collect new weapons in Beyond Light.

With these five weapons alone, you’ll be well on your way to taking down any threat Beyond Light throws your way. It’s worth bearing in mind that plenty of new equipment could soon replace all of these in your inventory.

But if you’re looking to be as powerful as possible on day one, tracking down these five weapons is the best place to start.

Destiny 2: Beyond Light is jam-packed with awesome content right out of the gate, but everyone gets stuck somewhere, and the Technocrat Empire Hunt has proven to be a difficult hurdle to climb. Here’s how to finish it once and for all.

The Technocrat Empire Hunt in Destiny 2: Beyond Light pits players against Praksis, the Technocrat. He is a Fallen from the House of Salvation and trusted lieutenant for Eramis, Kell of Darkness.

Praksis, The Technocrat will do anything to support Eramis and his malicious cause, which puts him on a collision course with Destiny 2: Beyond Light players. It all comes together in the Technocrat Empire Hunt, where players have a chance to eliminate him once and for all.

However, it’s easier said than done. He is extremely powerful, and before you reach him, you’ll need to take on some lesser enemies and finish a series of tasks. 

Here’s everything players will need to know, including a step-by-step guide, some tips for the fight, and what you’ll get once you manage to beat him.

How To Complete The Technocrat Empire Hunt

  • First, make sure you have a power level of at least 1120.
  • Then, locate and enter Bray Exoscience.
  • In typical Destiny 2 fashion, you’ll have to work your way through waves of enemies and take on Fallen Brigs.
  • Next, you’ll need to destroy some shield generators, which will help weaken Praksis, The Technocrat ahead of the final showdown.
  • From there, you’ll have nothing left to do but come face to face with Praksis, The Technocrat and take him down.

Praksis, The Technocrat isn’t a walk in the park. You’ll need to keep moving and avoid getting hit by one of his powerful moves.

Tips To Make The Fight Easier

Praksis, The Technocrat is no slouch. He’s even harder than Phylaks, The Warrior, which many players struggled with.

Luckily, there are some tips you can follow to make it easier.

  • Start moving around the tower the moment the fight begins, and don’t stop until he is toast.
  • Praksis, The Technocrat is a skilled Stasis wilder. He has a series of abilities that deal devastating amounts of damage, especially against players with lower skill levels.
  • He also has a shield, and when he uses it, you’ll need to keep an eye out for the red generators floating in the air and destroy them.
  • When in doubt, don’t forget to use the empowering pool at the entrance to the arena. It will give you rechargeable Stasis abilities that are extremely useful throughout the fight.

Once you’ve managed to beat him, you can return to the Europa camp.

The Coriolis Force Legendary Fusion Rifle

Players who finish The Technocrat Empire Hunt will receive an awesome weapon, the Coriolis Force Legendary Fusion Rifle. It is extremely fast and powerful and shoots a horizontal volley of Void bolts.

The Coriolis Force Fusion Rifle packs a punch in PvE, especially when equipped with perks like One for All and Thresh. It can one-shot enemies in PvP too, but only from close range due to its unique spread. Think of it more like a shotgun.
